One of Many Benefits of Paying Attention to the Comments

A few days ago, I wrote about a song I like by a band called Band of Horses. In the comments section under that post, my friend E.J. wrote, in part: "you should go to their website and download their demos. i liked those more than the ones they released on their cd."

This turns out to be a very nice call. If you go to this page on the band's site, you get superior versions (to my ears) of "Wicked Gil" and "Funeral," two songs that sound OK on the album, but there "Gil," if it's even the same song, is over-produced and the vocals sound almost Black Sabbath-like. The demo is more mellow, as you might expect.
